Benefits of a future focused degree
Our distinctive postgraduate programmes and interdisciplinary approach benefit graduates in a number of ways that support future employability and development. As well as knowledge specific to your area of study, studying at Edinburgh Futures Institute will give you the skills and understanding you need to become a creative, confident and critical citizen in a fast-changing world.
These include core data skills, data ethics, the ability to interrogate issues of global scope, and the creative and analytic approaches to knowledge that are vital for building better futures.
For instance, students have opportunities to:
- Acquire and enhance the data and higher-order skills we know are important for the future of work, for confident and critical citizenship, and for a thriving, just society.
- Think ambitiously about the future across different sectors and disciplines and apply innovative and creative methods to complex problems.
- Learn in an ambitious, creative, ‘what-if’ environment that will let you explore your passions.
